I've had my pro-kit for over 2 years now and I have no complaints...ride quality is great and the drop is just right.

Has anyone else had to swap out their stock shocks? I'm not having any problems but I'm trying to plan on when to switch to coilovers. I want to get as much out of them as possible.

I have the pro-kit, and I love them! I autocross with them and they feel great.

I have been wondering the same thing about my shocks as well. I was told that you shouldnt go more than 10,000 miles on the stock shocks once you have lowered the car. I am looking into different companies, but probably ruled out koni yellows.

My Tein S-Techs are great. I can disagree with the people who say the ride quality is equal to or better than stock though. These winter months produced some mean potholes and man the ride is rough. I remember last winter (equally as bad) when I had stock springs where ride was definitely smoother than it is now. Not to say it's unbearable or anything, but it is very noticeable.

Other than that, you can feel the road better and handling is more predictable. Less body roll and is a perfect drop. Not much of a gap and not tucked looking either. At first, I thought the front dropped too much relative to the rear, but the rear settled rather equally now. Good stuff :thumbsup:
